Jan 08, 2006

well got most of it......very well done
Jan 12, 2006

I actually got it, I was surprised, I was expecting something much more involved and complicated.

Or "roll" doesn't belong because it is the only one with along vowel sound.
Jan 19, 2006

or bug is the only thing you can do to people without moving them.
Feb 14, 2006

and because bug is the only one without an R.
Feb 16, 2006

i got it right 4 a different reason
Dec 26, 2008

It is obvious from the list that bug does not belong as the others are inanimate objects, and it is not.
Dec 26, 2008

I agree with others thay there is more than one answer. This makes it a poor choice for a teaser.
Dec 26, 2008

I for one didn't find it easy, I didn't get it but not for lack of trying. Thanks for posting.

Nice and easy for the day after Xmas. Dinn't want to think too hard at work!
Dec 26, 2008

I didn't get it right,but in my quest I noticed all 5 can be nouns or verbs. Good teaser.

A suffix can be added to all without the addition of a second consonant; except for bug. I still think it was a fun teaser
Dec 26, 2008

Or "SPREAD" because it's the only word with more than one vowel.
Dec 26, 2008

i thought it was bug too
there seems to be a lot of different answers!
Dec 26, 2008

maybe it can be "bug".....its the only word not having the letter "R"
Dec 26, 2008

I thought it was hard, too. I just couldn't get it.
Dec 26, 2008

Huh, I said bug because it's the only one that's alive.
